MISSIONS

The following are outreaches we support financially and in prayer. These ministries are both local and global and reflect our heart here at Discovery Christian Community to reach and to serve those locally and globally. 

 Utah Lighthouse Ministry

Utah Lighthouse Ministry was co-founded by Sandra Tanner, and her husband Jerald, both from fifth generation LDS families,  in 1983.  After being challenged that the LDS faith did not line up with the Bible and that LDS scriptures and doctrines have been changed, Jerald and Sandra  turned to Christ and  Biblical Christianity.  Since then they have ministered to both the LDS and Christian communities through their bookstore, seminars, books, newsletters and web site
.  Their ministry is known for its extensive research on the history and doctrine of Mormonism as compared to the Bible.  Jerald died in 2006, from complications of Alzheimer’s disease, but Sandra continues the publishing ministry and meeting with people in their bookstore in Salt Lake City, Utah.
 

 Because He First Loved Us

Because He First Loved Us is a relational ministry to refugee families to meet spiritual, educational and practical needs through child and family mentoring and resource networking.

Danielle and Danjuma Alcala are the founders and leaders of this ministry, which is actively supported and endorsed by Discovery Christian Community

Great Commission Fund (GCF)

At Discovery, we donate 5% of our budget to the Great Commission Fund, or GCF, which is the primary source of funding for Alliance ministries around the world. The GCF funds over 700 missionaries in over 70 countries around the world.

By giving to the GCF, our church can be a part of what God is doing around the world. The GCF allows workers around the world to preach the gospel, make disciples, plant churches, train local leaders, and care for those who need critical medical care or have been devastated by war or natural disaster.

Central Pacific District (CPD)

 
As mentioned under “our beliefs and family”, Discovery is part of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Specifically, our church is in the Central Pacific District (we call it the CPD). We give 5% of our budget to the CPD to support the wonderful ministry they provide to our church and other churches in our district. Our church has benefited directly from the training, equipping, resourcing, guidance, networking, and prayer that the CPD provides.
